Overview

This cost-effective platform is designed to serve millions of users utilizing both live and on-demand content. We provided both a dynamic website and a content management system to allow our clients to continue to update their service. This project was developed in a short timeline, delivered on time and under budget.

Opportunities

The previous system crashed at 100,000 concurrent viewers and the design needed updating to meet modern consumer demands. Content management, scalability, and serving live video were client priorities. We approached this project with a high-traffic architecture and modern, clean website that can scale on the cloud.

Research & Design

Methods: competitive analysis, wireframes, high-fidelity mockups

Design Challenge & Process

Buildable implemented a human-centered design process where we evaluated the design of the previous site and found areas for opportunity, conducted a competitive analysis, and applied sleek visual design concepts. This process created a cutting-edge and intuitive website for our clients's users.

Architecture and Tech Stack

Methods: HTML/JS/CSS static website, C#/.NET/Angular/SQL Server content management system, Amazon S3 cloud hosting

Buildable was able to create the high-traffic solution by combining Amazon CloudFront (CDN) and S3. Our careful, strategic architecture enabled the website to handle spikes of millions of viewers with a response time under 200 milliseconds. With this strategy, uptime is no longer an issue for the client and the website is always available with manageable costs.
